(EN)
After a few self-released tunes and a collab EP with BSN Posse for the british label Modern Ruin Records, Stayhigh makes his long-awaited solo debut appearance with "Kush, Rhodes & 808's", the third official reference for the Iberian Juke label. In this release Stayhigh makes use of all his influences to show us a personal reinterpretation of the Chicago footwork sound.
The first track, "OFR" is a tribute to DJ Rashad, the biggest reference of Chicago footwork. "Turn Up" is a subtle example of his techno influences, with a rhodes piano close to the classic Detroit sound. "Don't U Worry" and "Anything Is Possible" represent a positive message of personal overcoming for the difficult times we are facing right now. With "Look Around" he wants to criticize a sector of today’s hypochrite and racist society, making use of a break sound that at times reminds us of the 90’s old-skool jungle. The final track "Keep the Drug$" provides a fresh touch to the EP.
Six tracks that allows us to glimpse a very promising future for this young producer, who has already gained attention from some big names like Fracture, Ivy Lab, Alix Perez or Daedelus amongst others.

Tras varios releases propios y un EP en colaboración con BSN Posse para el sello Modern Ruin Records (UK), Stayhigh hace su esperado debut en solitario con “Kush, Rhodes & 808s”, la tercera referencia oficial del sello Iberian Juke. En este EP Stayhigh nos muestra su reinterpretación personal del sonido footwork de Chicago a partir de todas sus influencias.
El EP empieza con OFR, tema con el que da las gracias al máximo exponente de este género, DJ Rashad. En “Turn Up” muestra sutilmente sus raíces más Tech, cuyo rhodes se acerca al antiguo sonido de Detroit. “Don’t U Worry” y “Anything Is Possible” transmiten un mensaje positivo y de superación para los tiempos en los que vivimos actualmente. Con “Look Around” hace una crítica a un sector de la sociedad hipócrita y racista sobre un break en que por momentos se acerca al Jungle de los 90 y “Keep the Drug$” aporta un toque de frescura al EP.
Seis tracks que nos permiten vislumbrar un futuro muy prometedor para este productor que ya ha captado la atención de gente como Fracture, Ivy Lab, Alix Perez o Daedelus entre otros.
